“Casita” is a Spanish word meaning “small house”. In today’s terms, it often refers to a small dwelling built onto a homeowner’s existing space, like in their backyard.

Many build casitas to have a comfortable living space for extended family and guests or generate rental income.

Building a Guest House

While the rise of Amazon DIY tiny homes may make the construction of an accessory dwelling unit seem simple, there are a variety of industry-specific aspects to take into account, such as obtaining building permits, ensuring the build meets neighborhood home design regulations, and having a realistic outlook on project cost.

For example, building a single studio room off to the side of your pool area to rent out on Airbnb might seem like a great business, but once you consider the safety of the foundation and plumbing for a bathroom, your budget may need to grow.

Add Value with a Casita

A casita provides private space for family, guests, or your home office and can significantly raise your home value! According to a recent study, building a casita on your property can add anywhere from $10,000 to as much as $30,000 to your total asking price when you’re ready to sell.

Converting a Detached Garage

Even if you already have a detached garage on your property, it requires a separate building permit to be converted into a casita. Converting a garage into a living space can become a more extensive project than expected that might include raising the floor, insulating the walls, adding heating, cooling, and ventilation, and updating doors and windows.

That said, it can be a cost-effective way to add more living space without constructing a building from scratch. This project would be considered a remodel rather than a true “casita”.
